The long term reliability of connectors can vary from one manufacturer to another but a typical connector durability is rated in the order of 10,000 mating cycles. The durability is a normal quoted parameter in component data sheets so we can rely on it being the result of testing rather than guess work. It is important to be aware that rough handling of the connector can substantially reduce the durability.
If the connector is swapped twice each day, the life of the connector should last for anything up to ten years. It is very likely that the conductors inside the cable will fail due to bending far sooner than the connector itself will wear out.
